Robin Hood’s Bay is a fishing village in the North York Moors National Park. You might not have associated Robin Hood with Yorkshire, as Sherwood Forest is not near it and neither is Nottingham. However, perhaps one of its smugglers was like Robin Hood and that’s how it got its name. It’s one of those villages that would have been perfect for smugglers; it has a warren of streets which twist and turn, so a local would have been able to escape from a customs man quite easily. It was John Leland who first mentioned Robin Hood’s Bay in 1536, stating that it was a “fischer tounlet of 20 bootes with Dok or Bosom of a mile yn length.” At one time Robin Hood’s Bay was a more important port that nearby Whitby.
